sometimes - not always, when I use partitions, I get the strange feeling that I get far too few visible particles by each partiton, like the random seed is ignored, mostly.
What I did:
Used a converted MoText object for some x-particles emission (emitter shape: object, emit from: volume),
the emission stops after 50 frames, after 5K particles with zero speed were born.
Then I used wind and turbulence to blow them away.
Now comes the Krakatoa part:
I saved 20 partitions with the Increment Emission Random Seeds checkbox enabled, so I expected totally random seeds and therefore random positions.
But after loading the additional partitions, I still get the feeling that almost 90% of the particles occupy the exact same space.
When increasing the number for the partitions to load step by step, it looks like I only get 5 new particles each time, instead of 5000.
(of course, the checkobox for Enable Display Particle Limit is disabled)
Here an animated gif, switching between 1 and 20 loaded partitions. Why does it look like the count only doubled, at best?
I was expecting way more particles in between the gaps.
(for the render, force additive mode is enabled)
Krakatoa 2.3.2, from december 2014
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
